    I think a Tourist is someone who takes a couple of weeks out a year on holiday-a traveller is someone has spent most of his/her life to experience other cultures and places-a professional-a tourist finds the cheapest and the most hassle free way of getting somewhere and unlikely to immerse them selves in local culture, travellers do the opposite.
    Or more simply put Tourists send postcards-travellers donΒ΄t!

    A tourist watches the world shielded by the bus window. A traveller soaks themselves in the culture and steps of the beaten track….. πŸ™‚ maybe….

  3. I think a tourist goes somewhere, says things are quaint or pretty, hits a few cheesy gift shops then goes home. A destination is not really much more than an amusement park.

    A traveler goes to a destination to experience, to learn, and as such relishes the prospect of potentially coming home a changed person, with broadened horizons.
